People's Bible Notes for John 19:9


Joh 19:9,10 Whence art thou? This statement arouses the fear of Pilate. He had never seen such calm dignity and majesty before. Could this prisoner be divine? When Jesus is silent, Pilate reminds him that he has power to crucify or release.

Outside of the cup is beautiful, but ........

    V. 21 - "Chief Priests of the Jews", said write I Am; Ex.3: 6,14; Jn. 18:5-6. Interesting - that the priests didn't realize who He was or what they said. In Jn. 19:21 -- they SAID Jesus was - God - and didn't even realize it. Matt. 23:15
